The Effects of Poor Environmental Sanitation to the Community
There are many lessons we can learn from poor environmental sanitation around the world and all of us in involve with this without knowing. Look around you in your community and you can see the effect almost instantly. Poor environmental sanitation that leads to many diseases that kill lives of many people especially from slum areas where there are population explosion, poverty is experienced and malnutrition has taken effect because of poor nutrition and poor environmental sanitation to the community like the issue of pollution due to waste problems.
Pollution that leads to global warming which has become one of the most dangerous problems the world has ever known. The air we breathe contains toxic chemicals that destroy living things, people, animals and plants little by little. The water that is unsafe may cause so many hazards not just in people but also to the environment. Wastes and garbage that is overwhelmed in many rivers destroys its habitat. We can easily remember the SARS disease in China that scars the people not just in their country but also in Southeast Asia, the bird flu in Thailand and the red tide of rivers that kill many sea creatures all around the world. This has been the effect of environmental issues that we evolving every now and then.
The forest is continuously decreasing because of industrialization and animals and other species are in danger. There are many illegal loggers that continuously cut the tree for consumption. Some fisherman uses explosive that kills many underwater creatures and this has cause pollution in many rivers. Farmers who learn to use harmful chemicals to produce plenty of harvest but low quality crops. In some parts of the world there are illegal mining that slowly destroys the formation of the earth and its substances.
As you can see the death rate of people is increasing. There are many Earthquakes, Floods and storms which are uncommon and come out in time due to the changes in weather condition. And all of these have been the cause of tremendous and poor environmental pollution. The world we live in is getting little by little and this is not something we can’t avoid. You can see all the signs of danger is in nature disturbance around the world. As long as poor environmental sanitation is experienced within in the community the threats of danger will always be there.
However there are many factors that can lead to good environmental sanitation if people in the community will only learn to love and take care of our nature. People all around us must learn to keep our trashes and garbage to its safe place. I believe the government in all our community must learn to implement all the provisions of the law that safeguard our environment. Government shall take pride to control the production companies that produce harmful chemicals and toxic that pollutes the nature. Each company must have their own initiative and social responsibility to throw their garbage in proper places and all those who abide the law should suffer from the consequences they have done. Illegal loggers should be prosecuted and safekeeping of our nature should be properly governed by authority. Even a single person should learn to appreciate cleanliness in the surrounding. Clean surroundings mean a healthy life.
Governments all around the world has been involve in many environmental issues that we can adopt. Issues like tree planting, water curing and animal care. This can be done by children and adult alike. Energy conservation by using wind turbine and hydro electricity as a substitute for coal burning are now being taught to school and some companies starts to produce solar panels to get energy from the sun and save us from industrialization pollution. Some cars and other gadget are under development to produce low carbon emission for safer air.
Learn to Reuse some products rather than throw it away, Learn to reduce consumption of electricity, water, and chemicals as much as possible, this way you can save for yourselves and help eliminate pollution. And most of all learn to recycle things around you instead of putting it on trash. Be involved in organization that pushes environmental issues and learn from it. As you can see there are many things that you can do to participate. Hopefully all this and more will continue because there is only one planet we can live in. Let us do our share in saving the Earth.
